FORMER Motherwell keeper Darren Randolph has completed a £5million move to Middlesbrough, as Scotzine predicted yesterday.
The 30-year-old Republic of Ireland international quit West Ham after the season-long loan arrival of England No.1 Joe Hart from Manchester City.
Randolph made 42 appearances for the London outfit during a two-year spell and was praised by boss Slaven Bilic.
He said: “Darren has been a fantastic professional and, as a player and a person, has the respect of everyone at West Ham.
“He is a very good goalkeeper and I didn’t want him to leave.
“However, I could not guarantee him regular first team football and, with the possibility of playing at the World Cup next summer, he wanted to take up the offer from Middlesbrough.
“We didn’t think it was right to deny him this opportunity to establish himself as a No1 playing every week in the Championship, but I am sorry to see him go.”
Randolph joined Well from Charlton in 2010 before leaving three years later as a free agent for Birmingham City.
